We visited a new restaurant in our area called Cora's last weekend. They serve breakfast and lunch only and feature decadent but healthy platters of fruit, crepes, pancakes, sandwiches, omeletes, etcetera. Crepes were very popular in the 1970's before people felt guilty about eating eggs and creamy sauces. Our weather today is horrid, so Becka and I experimented with making crepes. The results were delicious! Here is a basic crepe recipe, easy to make and handle.

In a blender mix:

1 cup flour (I used high fiber white flour)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons melted butter

Lightly oil and large skillet (10") and add about 1/4 cup batter. Tip the pan quickly to let the batter cover the entire pan in a very thin layer. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and then turn crepe for until done. Each crepe takes a minute or less to cook once the pan is hot.

Makes 8 -10 inch crepes. Fill as desired with a savoury or sweet filling.
